Abstract

A reduction in the intensity deviation of a nine-channel optical frequency comb block (OFCB) is demonstrated, by adopting an asymmetric differential drive method for an InP-based dual drive Mach-Zehnder modulator. The generation of a tailored OFCB with an intensity deviation of less than 0.8 dB is confirmed by using the modulator.
